Laodicea Caracalla Nymphaeum



Laodicea had several bathing complexes, five fountains (nymphaea), four agoras, two theatres and a stadium. Here we see the Caracalla Nymphaeum. In the 3rd century A.D., this building served as a meeting place for Christians. This is indicated by the cross, carved on a stone, which was found there. The stone is standing on the bench near the corner at right.
